Physical Appearance Edit
Mrs Washington was a very pretty woman, she had black hair and dark skin.
At some point in her life, Mrs. Washington attended college and gained a masters degree in art history.
Mrs. Washington is seen once in a flashback, and it is shown that her and Poussey had a very loving, close relationship. This is confirmed by Poussey who said that she loved her mom, and who is seen grieving her during Mother's Day at the prison ("Mother's Day").
After this, she ended up in hospital somehow and ended up dying.
- It's mentioned in "(Don't) Say Anything" that she has a Masters degree in Art History.
- Samira Wiley had initially planned Poussey's backstory to contain a very close relationship with her mother, until mid-filming she realised the character was to be killed off.
